OAK3 error message - Specifications for the mean value methods incorrectly

Hello experts,

After golive of sap ECC system of our client, when the auditors check the consistency of depreciaion areas in transaction OAK3, the error message is appearing under the depreciation area 01 as "Specifications for the mean value methods incorrectly defined". Can anybody throw some light on how to encounter this error message?

1) Usually, the reason why the error occurs is that you have no area defined in the chart of depreciation.

2) Also please check the attached note 847289.

3) Please also run OIB5 and check if capitalization version is assigned to depreciation area 01

If you use capitalization versions it is necessary to have a depreciation area with area type 07 (Cost-acc. valuation) which

get the whole amounts.

The depreciation area which takes the values to 100 % must have the following features:

=> The currency of the depreciation area should have the currency of the controlling area

=> The depreciation area should have the depreciation area type "07 Cost-acc. valuation"

=> The area should not have a capitalization version

regards Bernhard
